Thanks for visiting my QRZ page.

Please be sure to add your call to my "web contact log" above.

I was first licensed in May 1977 as WD4EVW.  I upgraded from Novice to General in September of 1977, then to Advanced in September of 1978, and finally to Extra in March of 1979.  I received my current callsign on April 7, 1979.  It is not a 'vanity callsign' and to the best of my knowledge, it was the first 'KK' prefix in the entire world.  The new call made me a hot item on HF as I was heavily pursued by prefix hunters, operators who thought I was rare DX, and operators who simply wanted a QSL card from the first 'KK' prefix in the world.  Most of my operating time is spent on HF CW and digital modes such as BPSK31, RTTY, WSPR, JT65, JT9, and FT8, although I also enjoy an occasional phone contact.  I live in an antenna restricted neighborhood so on the outside I am currently limited to a 150 foot random wire mounted on a 6 foot high wood privacy fence with a remote tuner at the feed point.  It isn't the best antenna but with the remote tuner it gets me on all HF bands plus 6 meters.  Its not so good on 6 meters.  I also have two attic antennas: a MFJ-1786 magnetic loop antenna mounted horizontally in the attic of my two-story house at about 25 feet above the ground and a 6 meter "squalo" mounted horizontally in the attic at about the same height.  I am heard better when using the magnetic loop or the 6 meter squalo and I usually hear better with either of them.  The magnetic loop covers 10 thru 30 meters.  I now use the fence-mounted long wire primarily for 40,  80 and 160 meters.

I QSL 100% via eQSL and LoTW.  I also respond to all QSL cards received by me through the ARRL incoming QSL bureau.  I will respond to all cards that I receive via direct mail if you include a SASE with your QSL card.
